Peace be with you

Father Mike was the priest at Fort Ord, California. My brother and I served as his alter boys every Sunday. On occasion we would be hanging out at the chapel while Father Mike would be practicing his Sunday sermon to an 'empty' chapel. Upon leaving Fort Ord he deployed to Vietnam. He lost his life giving administering spiritual life to another, he would have had it no other way. Peace be with you Father Mike!

Memories of Fr. Mike

Fr. Mike's Mom (Margaret) was my Dad's first cousin. He brought his Mom and his Aunt Nora to visit us in Newark often. He shared stories from his assignment down South. It was quite a cultural shock to him after growing up in New York City. He was disgusted by the segregation. He was the sweetest guy, and we looked forward to their visits. I think we even visited him at Maryknoll. He wanted to be a missionary and he did that by becoming a chaplain.

Chaplain Michael Quelley at Presideo of Monterey

I have a fond memory of Fr. mike. We were both assigned to Fort Ord/Presideo of Monterey. This was in1967. The night before he left for Nam he treated two of us chaplain assistant to an Italian dinner in Monterey. We had a great time. It was barely a week later that I shocked to hear he was killed. I couldn't believe it. He was such sweet guy. He was so much fun. He loved to laugh. He was a beautiful priest"............very dedicated. What a tragedy. I often think of him and remember him in my prayers. At the time I was a 19 draftee Catholic chaplain assistant and worked with him when he was assigned to the chapel at Presidio of Monterey, which was very near Fort Ord.

Today, I am a permanent deacon assigned to Christ The King Catholic Community in Las Vegas. It was such a thrill to discover thie website dedicated to him. I shall continue to keep him and any of his family in my prayers.
